Remote Internet voting security flaw?

  1. Feb 1, 2012 #1
    Hi guys,

    Traditional voting via paper ballots at polling stations, meant that each individual was free to vote for his candidate in complete privacy. A father could vote for a separate candidate and a son for another candidate. So I was wondering is there any way in which to ensure similar privacy when using Internet voting as well ? Or will that then depend on the voter to ensure that he is in a 'private' environment?

    I understand its probably not big of an issue since at worst one would vote in front of friends and family...but doesnt it regardless prove a security flaw in internet voting?
